Lesson 2

Learning activities and reflection

Explore the website of your own college or association to learn about the regulatory mechanisms in place to support your role in managing patients who are using controlled drugs and substances as part of their therapeutic management. Consider the self-reflection questions provided below to help shape your review of the resources.

Reflection questions:

  • Are the competencies and standards of practice related to CDS prescribing in your jurisdiction similar to those in other parts of Canada? What is different, and will this impact your prescribing and management practices? Why or why not?
  • Are there additional educational or continuing competence requirements related to CDS prescribing and management in your jurisdiction? How might you find opportunities to meet these requirements?
